The people chosen to represent the youths are Rinu Oduala and Majekodunmi Temitope.However, earlier today, as the session was about to start, a copy of a document panellists were asked to sign hit the internet. The panellists were given an oath of secrecy to sign, swearing they will not “directly or indirectly communicate or reveal any matter to any person” without being “officially permitted by the Governor”.
